A Tuff Rose is a two-piece Acoustic Alt-Folk band from New York. The members are: Joe James whom is a self taught no lessons! no thanks to you POP! singer-songwriter that grew up in the forests of Tobyhanna, PA and Katie Sciacca a classically trained cellist and singer playing with the band and chorus throughout school growing up in East Meadow NY. These two artists met in high school and started collaborating musically years later while attending college. Joe went to Five Towns College in Dix Hills for film and Katie attended SUNY Potsdam (originally for music then went crazy and changed over to business). Joe has been a member of a few local Long Island rock bands (Moose Moose, Circle The Whale, Alias Frequency, and Riot Punch) and actively drums for friends and projects in the (attempt of a) music community on LI. This is Katie’s first original music project. Katie’s main influences come from classical music, soundtracks, musicals and soft spoken singer song writers such as Elliott Smith, Nick Drake, Sufjan Stevens, and Iron and Wine. Joe loves Wilco, like a lot.
